Tales Of Older Men Knowing Better And Upcoming Forced Romance
Day 5 of The Andie Chronicles
GG had to remind me it was four days until Valentine’s Day, in the middle of spin class, no less.
Taylor, her boyfriend, was organising a dinner for the two of them on the night. He knew how to put on romance.
I thought his brother did too, but it would seem Douglas had performed the best ghosting act I had ever seen.
Here one day, gone the next.
And apparently, he has now instructed Taylor not to say anything to GG so she wouldn’t say anything to me. He was really making sure he could make an exit without me being able to call him out on it.
I felt sorry for Taylor.
He was in the middle of it. GG was too.
But with Valentine’s Day coming up, I didn’t feel like this situation was going to improve. If I asked James to have dinner with me that night at Candy’s, the restaurant at the end of Lovelock Drive, I could avoid the messiness.
That would be my plan, anyway.
Yet, why I didn’t ask James about it today during work has me convinced I’m still holding out hope my boyfriend will materialise before then.
Hope. Now that’s an interesting concept right now for me. I don’t hope when I’m working. As I spent the whole day making sure I could secure the name of our business, Highway, I didn’t rely on hope.
I didn’t have my fingers crossed that these processes would go to plan. Instead, I would make them happen. I couldn’t do that for my love life, though.
